                        the head of that axe is too big. the french boarding axes were much smaller, almost tomahawk like. as a compact fire axe, well done, though.

                                    Alec should make a video on different kinds of steel, what the numbers mean, that kind of thing. I'd watch the hell out of that.

                                      Brody Alford it would be a very long video, because the naming system is not really universal from manufacture to manufacture. Sometimes the numbers and letters have to do with carbon content, added trace elements, and procedures used to make it (like Crucibles CPM) but other times it’s just a list number.

                                      And then there are various versions of the same Steel like 154CM and CPM 154. Or even universally known steels like 1095 which are rebranded if made in a different country, like T10 maybe just 1095 or 1084

You should've seen my master smith, both arms and chest like a Cradely Heath chain maker. He made Schwarzenegger look like a consumptive child. Tell you buddy that "real" blacksmiths don't use grinders. My master used silica sand as flux rather than borax.

But tell me if I am wrong
